An Interview with Shennie

Last updated: 6/27/2013
The Fool:
What's the best product you use that most people don't know about?
Shennie:
I use a device from "Hunter Fan Co." that allows me to turn the lights in my house on and off (and control the fans) without having to get up. I love it!
The Fool:
In what way would society be different if bears had become the dominant sentient species?
Shennie:
There would be a lot more trash
The Fool:
To what extent has your financial success, or lack thereof, been the result of luck versus skill?
Shennie:
I was lucky enough to have great jobs and grew with several big pharma companies through the expansion of their pipeline, many drugs that I was responsible for. As a result, the majority of my money has been earned through a career, and I am newly investing on my own.
